Extension of Renewal of Transitional Policies, March 2017
On March 5, 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a bulletin providing for a two-year extension that would allow insurers to renew existing non-grandfathered policies that do not comply with all requirements of the Affordable Care Act (hereinafter “transitional policies”). The Department subsequently issued Bulletin 205, which permitted transitional policies to be renewed in Indiana at the insurers’ discretion.

New Small Group Definition Effective January 1, 2016
IDOI Bulletin 221 addresses a “new” small group definition effective 1-1-16. In addition, there is an extensive FAQ which provides guidance on exactly how Indiana will define a small group for purposes of providing employer health coverage. We are aware that there are concerns associated with this definition and are in process of addressing them with ISAHU sister organizations and the IDOI. As more information becomes known, we will do our best to get it out to our members. –Dwight “D” Hall, ISAHU Legislative Chair
